Thank you for calling attention of your readers to the dangers of electromagnetic fields, including but not limited to WiFi and cell phone towers.

The current safety standards are based on the assumption that the only thing these fields can do is heat things, like heating foods in a microwave oven. But we know that this is false. These fields act by activating channels designated VGCCs in the cells of our bodies. And that in turn produces many serious health impacts, including oxidative stress, breaks in the DNA of our cells, cancer, male and female infertility, many neuropsychiatric effects including depression and serious effects on the electrical control of the heart including tachycardia (rapid heart beat), arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. These are not the only threats, only the most documented of the many health threats. As you can see, these attack what are probably the most important things that we value as individuals and as a species, our health, our brain functions, the integrity of our genomes and our ability to produce healthy offspring.

The safety standards, because they are based on a fiction, are of no value, and consequently the assurances of safety that are based on them are equally without value. All of these things are extensively documented in a very large and growing scientific literature and many groups of scientists have argued against these safety standards. In Europe, a number of countries are taking notice and taking action but the U.S. and Canada are not. (Please note: These are my professional views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the university from which I have “retired”).
